This conversation between Shimon Peres, ninth president of Israel, and Michael Bar-Zohar, his Israeli biographer, took place about five months before Peres assumed the presidency, in July 2007. The men clearly have a strong rapport (as well as beautiful Hebrew accents) and the program flows effortlessly as the author and statesman discuss the Israeli-Palestinian peace process, Peres' love for his wife, living on the kibbutz, and poetry. Though it embraces people of all faiths, the 92nd Street Y is landmark Jewish cultural institution, and these men are warmly embraced by the live audience, who ask them well-informed questions at the end of the formal program.
Bar-Zohar is the award-winning author of 30 fiction and nonfiction books. Ben-Gurion, his definitive portrait of Israel's founder, has been translated into 14 languages. He has been active in Israel's political life and has known Shimon Peres since 1961.
